Published Sep 14, 2011The Rolling Stones' celebrated album Some Girls is more than 30 years old, so it's about time that it got its own lavish reissue with an expanded tracklist. The new version of the 1978 classic is due out in the UK on November 21 via Universal.
Although the exact details of the bonus materials are currently under wraps, an announcement on the band's website reveals, "This new package will include some undiscovered gems that include tracks that have recently been unearthed from the Rolling Stones vaults by producer Don Was."
The collection will be available in a variety of formats, including a "super-deluxe" set that features photos from an unseen shoot, an essay by rock critic Anthony DeCurtis, a seven-inch single featuring "Beast of Burden" and "When the Whip" in its original banned sleeve, plus other "eagerly awaited extras." See a picture of the package above.
There will also be a more basic physical and digital release. Of course, all formats will include a remastered version of the original album, which features hits like "Miss You" and "Beast of Burden," and took the band's sound into a divisive, disco-inspired direction.
There's no word as to when or if this reissue will be available on this side of the Atlantic, but North American fans will most likely be able to find somewhere to purchase a digital version at the very least.
This Some Girls package follows last year's expanded Exile on Main Street reissue.
